Dr. Carla F Fernando-Gilday has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

personable but the office is disorganized

Dr. seemed very thorough and pleasant, but there were so many missteps by the office staff, that after two visits, I was not comfortable going back. One time they put me with the wrong doc. Another time, Dr. Gilday kept me waiting almost 90 minutes. and said office staff did not tell her I was there. The person who weighed me was strange and made a rude comment about my weight.

The dotctor is good but the practice is too big. I had lots of mix-ups-mostly clerical errors, but I also went through a big ordeal when I called just for a routine matter-so many times I had to call back. I would not recommend this practice unless you are a very patient patient.

Watch out for this doctor

Dr. Carla Fernandez Gilday overdosed me twice on Fentanal during routine colonoscopies. When I complained and said I didn't want Fentanal anymore, she gave it to me forcibly. It was a horrifying experience .
